Skyscraper Windows - Research Project
Hey everyone, I hope this is alright of me to ask, here...
First off, I don't really have anything to do with Skyscrapers... I'm a writer doing research for a project I'm working on. Most the info I found online has been a little fuzzy and I figured this would be a good place to get a variety of experts' opinions
So: My question is about Skyscraper windows and the type of glass used. Basically, I wanted to know if it was tempered or otherwise strengthened glass - what it would take for an average person to break (with one's body, moving quickly into it) from the exterior and interior - and anything related.
I know glass and windows in skyscrapers are designed to stand up against strong winds and weather, but are they as strong or more fragile than most people think?
Thanks a ton for your help!
